As the ACLU notes in their recent article titled “Web Tracking and Online Privacy“, “Unfortunately some businesses will chase profits even when it violates consumer’s expectations of privacy”

Pseudonyms have a long tradition of usefulness in the furtherance of controversial ideas and speech. Among some famous examples are Benjamin Franklin who wrote under the pseudonym “Silence Dogood” and Samuel Clemens who wrote under the pseudonym “Mark Twain”. I can’t help but wonder whether he would still have considered writing anything that questioned man’s inhumanity to man with respect to the institution of slavery if his real name and home address were published along with everything he wrote.
